Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Nov. 29, 2016 (Deadline Nov. 15) Pisgah: Thornhill Farm Christmas Trees Field Trip

Thornhill Farm Christmas Trees
15107 Al Hwy 71, Pisgah, AL Tuesday, November 29th

Arrive by 11:30 to eat your own picnic lunch, or by 11:50 to join us for the tour at noon.

Event information: I'll add a more accurate description once I get it in an email from the owner, but for now this is the description from their website:  "Our tours consist of a 10-15 minute educational demonstration on propagating our plants, planting, shearing and the general upkeep of the farm. We also discuss the importance of our environmental friendly water system."

"After the tour, the kids will love visiting our petting zoo full of fuzzy farm friends. Your visit also includes our corn bin for the kids to play in, the walking trail, a train ride, and storytime with Mrs. Claus."

"During your visit our concessions stand will be open for snacks and beverages at reasonable prices."

In addition to what is said above, she said there would be an art activity.

The cost for children and adults is $8 each. You may also purchase your Christmas tree there, if you would like.

We are aiming for afternoon, rather than morning, to avoid the public school crowds of the morning. We will begin the tour at noon. Arrive by 11:30 if you want to allow time to eat your own picnic lunch before we get started. Arrive by 11:50 if you are coming just for the tour and activities.

I will not count an RSVP until I have payment in hand. To RSVP, please email me at mk530mackay@gmail.com, providing me with: your name, the number in your group, and the ages of the children in your group. I will provide you with my mailing address to send a check.

When I have your check, I will add you to the list. Deadline for signup, payment, and cancellation is Tuesday, November 15th.

This event is sponsored by Everest Academy but open to all homeschoolers. When you RSVP you agree to the Everest Academy participation policy. http://www.alabamahomeschooling.com/2014/07/everest-academy-participation-policy.html
